An Irvine resident tipped off Irvine PD after seeing drug transactions involving juveniles in Irvine.
Irvine Police Department detectives conducted surveillance and observed four large boxes being delivered to two juveniles in a parking lot in Tustin.
Detectives stopped the parties and found 2,000 “PLUG” brand THC cartridges, 1,500 of which were sold to the minors.
The dealer was arrested for selling cannabis to minors and booked at the Orange County Jail. The juveniles were released to their parents.
While possession of cannabis is legal for adults over 21 under certain guidelines, it is illegal to hire, employ or use a minor (under 18) in transporting, carrying, selling, giving away, preparing for sale, or unlawfully selling, or offering to sell any cannabis to a minor.
